Hi.

Found Akalabeth (Ultima zero) and I passed some days porting it to GW-Basic and discovering several interesting things. :grin:

Enjoy it!

I did a QBASIC port years ago, but I lost it. :(

It would be easier to redo using my source :)

Found a Qbasic port https://www.instruct...adventure-game/ not sure if it works.

Works fine in Dosbox with GWBasic, but PCBasic emulator for Windows (https://sourceforge....ojects/pcbasic/) keeps saying syntax error line 60085 when you get to the shop after rolling a character.

It's a well written BASIC line.

Reach the maintainer to see if he can correct the bug in the interpreter.

 

Never mind there was an extra right parenthesis that wasn't being detected by GW-Basic as error. I've reuploaded it.

Just ported it also to MSX-Basic, not so easy as I thought. Available at same web page. :)

Did you need a break from your Intellivision programming? ;)
